I didn't get it.

I do want those Scifi Dinos, I'm kinda hoping they will be released in metal.Íf not, I will get them solo.

And maybe some of those traffic cones, cause terrain is always cool.

 

The rest didn't appeal to me or I already had it in metal.

Me too. The dinos and traffic cones were all that interested me, so I can wait for retail.

I haven't decided on that one yet. If I do get it, the figures will (hopefully) get used in some Sci-Fi skirmish games.

There is something about Dreadmere that has me wanting to give Baba Yaga's hut duck feet instead of chicken feet....

 

*EDIT* I am picturing the hut paddling slowly through the mere....

And I'm imagining it quack.

 

As far as the Chronoscope goes, there just isn't enough value in there for me.  The dinos just don't do much for me, and if I wanted more of the expansion I wouldn't hesitate.  I really dig 314-316, and want to see more of those kind of aliens released.  The Martians (309-311) are ok, despite the awkward run pose.  I love 335-338 (traffic cones, jerry cans, and pylons), but that's it.

That running pose does look weird. I am buying two sets of the sci-fi terrain though so maybe I'm biased when it comes to the Chronoscope expansion.

I am wondering if it was not the first expansion out the gate, if it would have done better?

 

I think it's more content than timing. I mean, it has the fewest figures, and, aside from the dinos, nothing really fabulous. It's also not as cohesive as the other expansions (with the exception of fan favs, but that's just all over the place). I think if they'd had few different races with more variety in that race it would have worked better.

Which led to the mental image of the hut laying an egg.... Which hatches into a doghouse on duckling feet....

But does it quack?  That's the question!

 

I'm also a little concerned about winter migrations...

I'm actually the least excited about the future dinos as compared to any other part of Chronoscope. The T-rex has uses, but I'll likely be selling all the rest, or trading them with folks for more Rexes. I want a full squad of those.

With shipping and VAT, I have to think a bit more about what to get. I did not go for the whole core set, nice as it is. I really really tried hard to only get what I needed (chough) ... more like "don't have lots of that yet" ... and what I would pay that amount of money for if I saw it in a store and not in a great Kickstarter (and my second name is Scrooge as far as spending money in stores is concerned).

I got the Stygian Barge and the Dreadmere Expansion ... and I might add a thing or two, but I'll probably only spend half of what I spent on Bones III.

Oh those duerger look fantastic. Very heavy metal! If only they had a matching girl dwarf.

 

I read that as wishing they had a magical girl dwarf. I feel this needs to happen.

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
